“The Stelios Award for the Young Entrepreneur of the Year in Greece - 2012 - has been formally launched by easyJet founder, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou.

For the fifth consecutive year, the serial entrepreneur’s Stelios Philanthropic Foundation (in conjunction with Leshi Ephirimatikotitas enterprise promotion) will be awarding a E50,000 prize to the young entrepreneur (up to 40 years old) who demonstrates exceptional drive, determination and business ability.

Since its inception, this award has been won by a variety of businesses in sectors as diverse as tourism, on-line application software and eco-friendly goods and services. In 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 the Award was won by Simply Burgers, Zoo.gr, Fasmetrics and Fereikos-Helix respectively.

Sir Stelios said:
“Starting and growing new businesses has never been so important as it is today. Our current national economic emergency makes it vital for new vibrant companies employing new workers and serving new customers both home and abroad, to replace those jobs already lost or under threat.

“I know we can rely on the entrepreneurial dynamism of our young businessmen and women to deliver the ideas and entrepreneurial acumen that will lay the foundations for tomorrow’s new stronger Greece. My team can’t wait to start assessing what I know will be a high quality field.”

The deadline for the submission of applications is 31 October 2012. The final winner will be announced by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou at the annual Kouros Awards run by Leshi Epihirimatikotitas on 22 November at the Intercontinental Hotel, Athens
